Description

If it’s true that we can only lead our clients as far as we’ve gone ourselves, then trauma healing starts with us. While many of us therapists have committed to our own healing journeys, sometimes for decades, we can still struggle to find a way beyond our own trauma reactions. How do we go further in our own healing journey? In this address, we’ll look at the entire arc of healing from trauma, including how we move beyond simply managing symptoms and triggers to explore the true meaning of forgiveness, for both ourselves and perpetrators, and with it, what’s possible for us, our clients, and our world.
